    Does anyone know if the front blade of Trijicon HD's is higher than a standard factory Glock sight?? I don't want to run into holster issues if I switch to the HD's.

    Is there another, less expensive, alternative out there?

    I'll know in about 3hrs when I get home from work and unbox the ones UPS just delivered, I'll post a comparison before I mount them...

    I have Trijicon HD's on my G27. If there is any difference in height it not not much, though I have never actually measured the difference. Hd's have not caused any problems in my IWB leather of Fobus kydex holsters.

    I love the HD's. Very fast sight aquisition in daylight, plus of course you have the tritiums for dark conditions. They might be a little expensive but they are well worth the money IMO.

    They may be a tad higher, but I haven't run into any issue with mine in any duty or off duty holsters. TXPO

    AFAIK, the HD front is .215 and the IDOT front is .220. Neither is extraordinarily high, with regards to holsters.

    Yeah they are taller but not much. I haven't had any problems fitting any of my holsters - and I have a bunch. :supergrin:

    My favorite sights. I have the orange front on all my Glocks.
